But when her husband’s plane goes down in the jungles of Mexico and she is told he is dead, Gabriella thinks things could not possibly get any worse.
She is wrong.
Despite the U.S. government’s attempt to find the wreckage, they come up empty-handed. Gabriella heads to Mexico to trace Donovan’s path to find some answers, and hopefully, some healing.

The fifth book in the acclaimed and Anthony, Barry and Macavity-nominated Gabriella Giovanni Mystery series.
All I can say is WOW! This grippingly enticing read kept me glued to the pages, even venturing into another borough because I just could not stop reading the visually descriptive narrative that had me on the sideline watching in as the events of the moment played out with the characters. The complexity of the various scenes was staged perfectly as both Donovan and Gabriella struggle to stay alive, not knowing the whereabouts of one another. The determination and the pivotal role that they must make to accomplish their goal is so agonizingly fraught, that my heart broke for them, even though Donovan pissed me off. Riveting emotions exude throughout this fast-paced drama that left me wanting more and I applaud the author for delivering a well-executed story that catered to what I love in a suspenseful novel. This is one of the best book in this terrific series and I can’t wait to see where we go next with Gabriella, Donovan and the rest of the gang.
